A UNIQUE RETAIL, DINING AND CULTURAL DESTINATION NESTLED ALONG THE BELTLINE IN ATLANTA'S CHARMING GRANT PARK NEIGHBORHOOD
Predating the City of Atlanta itself, Decatur has managed to retain its small-town feel despite the urban explosion around it. It's worth a visit (or two) to enjoy entertainment at the gazebo or a beer sidewalk-side to people-watch away the hours. A short ride on MARTA from the core of Atlanta, the square features a vibrant restaurant and arts scene. Characterized (questionably) as the Brooklyn of Atlanta by the New York Times, there’s no shortage of things to see and do around Decatur Square all year.

A fun visit for all seasons, but especially for October’s borderline unsettling Halloween Festival and Parade, Atlanta’s vibrant, subversive, and always feisty Little Five Points provides a shopping and people-watching experience like no other in town. L5P crept up organically in the 1920s, around streets where trolleys once converged, and visitor’s today can find everything from rad thrift-store jewelry and some of America’s best burgers to high-performance bicycles and indie concerts.

What beats a fall hike along the banks of the ’hooch? Not much. The Chattahoochee River, along the northern and western borders of the City of Atlanta, offers an array of options for whiling away an autumn day—even if it means skipping the getting wet part. The National Recreation Area, which includes the gorgeous East Palisades, features a range of options for hiking, kayaking and canoeing, swimming, tubing, and fishing. It’s an inexpensive, restorative way to soak in nature close to home.
